When Did Ryan Gosling & Eva Mendes Start Dating? The Two Actors Have Been An Item For A While

Well, what have we here? Some more exciting baby news to round out our Thursday evening? Hey, as far as I am concerned, there's no such thing as too many happy announcements (I know, I know. I hope you had your oven mitts for that piping hot opinion). According to Us Weekly, the ridiculously gorgeous pair of Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are expecting their second child. A source told Us Weekly that Mendes was seen hiding a baby bump at a photo shoot back in February.

Bustle has reached out to reps for Mendes and Gosling for comment, but has not yet heard back.

So when did these two lovely people become a lovely item? Gosling and Mendes reportedly began dating in 2011 when, according to legend, sparks flew between the two actors while they were working on Derek Cianfrance's drama The Place Beyond the Pines. The notoriously private couple maybe broke up back in 2013 (we may never know the full story, and that's their prerogative!), but whatever maybe-breakup might've happened didn't last long: Mendes gave birth to daughter Esmeralda Amada in September of 2014.

Hold up. Gosling and Mendes have been together for almost five years? Dang. I guess it's as the old saying goes: Time flies when you're following the real-life love story of two super hot celebrities.
